During 2017, almost 38,900 refugees were submitted by UNHCR for resettlement1 to 25 countries in Europe,2 36% more than during 2016 and over three times greater than the average rate of 12,400 submissions per year during the last decade.
Between 2007 and 2016, Europe’s proportion of resettlement sub-missions globally has increased from approximately 9% to more than 18%, and in 2017 reached 52%. This is primarily due to a significant decrease globally in new submissions for resettlement, most notably to the United States of America.

Iain Overton and Jennifer Dathan

Of all explosive weapons used, the IED is the most widespread, the most harmful and the most pernicious. Based on the belief that to overcome a problem, we must first understand it, this monitor is a small step in seeking to address the terrible realities of today.
It is a monitor that is, also, a response to a call to action.
Between 1 January and 31 July 2017, 25,556 refugees were submitted by UNHCR for resettlement to 22 countries in Europe, only 11% less than the total for 2016 and already 130% more than the average rate of 11,100 submissions per year during the last decade.

The global terrorist threat continued to evolve rapidly in 2015, becoming increasingly decentralized and diffuse. Terrorist groups continued to exploit an absence of credible and effective state institutions, where avenues for free and peaceful expression of opinion were blocked, justice systems lacked credibility, and where security force abuses and government corruption went unchecked.

La sécheresse dans la Corne de l’Afrique, la pire depuis 60 ans, menace la survie de centaines de milliers de personnes. La situation est particulièrement critique en Somalie, où l'ONU a décrété formellement la famine dans deux régions du Sud. La flambée des prix alimentaires et la poursuite du conflit dans ce pays ont entraîné d’énormes déplacements de populations. Chaque jour, des milliers de Somaliens fuient vers l’Ethiopie, le Kenya et Djibouti. Au total, 12 millions de personnes sont en danger de mort si elles ne reçoivent pas d’urgence une assistance alimentaire.
